Kathy,

I apologize for any confusion. I did indeed make two separate requests, but the wording was very similar so I can see how it was easily looked over.

My first request was for:
"Please only include statistics reflecting the number of ***civilian complaints, not internal/departmental complaints.***

I have received it, thank you very much. This second request is:
"Please only include statistics reflecting the number of ***internal/departmental complaints, not civilian complaints.***

I was trying to separate civilian and internal complaints.

Sorry again for the confusion.

Sincerely,
Morgan Landis

From: Columbus Division of Police
